The LLB Law and French programme is both challenging and stimulating, enabling you to build the skills required for a career in law or a wide range of professions.

Legal practice increasingly takes place on a global stage, and Cardiff's LLB programmes in law and languages aim to produce lawyers not only fully competent in the law of England and Wales, but also fluent in the chosen language and conversant with the general culture, political institutions and legal system of another country. The Law and French programme is taught in collaboration with the School of Modern Languages.
